IN TEL AVIV

As an Excel Fellow, you’ll quickly find out why Tel Aviv is known as the “Miami of the Middle East”. You and your other Excel Fellows live together in a student village steps away from a large park and less than a 10 minute walk from the stunning Mediterranean Sea. Not only will you have countless cafes and restaurants within the surrounding blocks of your front door, you’ll also be close to the business center of Tel Aviv.

Tamara

Summer is hot, hot, hot and Tel Avivians often cool off with a smoothie. Tamara, on the corner of Dizengoff and Ben Gurion, is an icon. Stroll down Dizengoff Street to check out art galleries, boutique clothing stores and hand-crafted jewelry shops as you sip a smoothie made from super fresh exotic fruits and vegetables.

(Ice cream, please)

Vaniglia

If a smoothie doesn’t keep you cool, Tel Aviv happens to be the ice cream capital of the world - in our humble opinion. Seriously, the flavor combinations are outrageous.
